Have you spent your teenage years with bad skin... awaiting the days of being an adult with no more pimples? Then when you get to being an adult, for some reason you still have acne? If so, you are NOT alone!
What is Adult Acne?
Adult acne is defined as persistent breakouts after the age of 25. There are two main types of adult acne:
- Lingering acne: when your teenage breakouts continue into your 20s and beyond
- Late-onset acne: sudden adult acne that seems to pop up out of nowhere
If you’re suffering from either of these issues, you may be left wondering:
How old do I have to get? At what age does acne STOP?
There’s no precise answer. You see, adult acne isn’t just teen acne overstaying its welcome. Adult acne has some key differences.
Teen acne tends to crop up all over the face, but adult acne is usually denser on the lower third of the face. You know — those pimples that keep appearing on your chin and jawline.
Plus, adult acne often appears as inflamed cysts rather than those whiteheads and blackheads of your high school days.
Skin problems like adult acne can feel very isolating - but trust us, you’re not the only one struggling!
